9 Red Bell Pepper Cream Sauce

A friend of mine told me that she ordered pasta with a red pepper cream sauce that was "to die for."

That sounds spicy, I told her.  

"No, not at all.  It's made with red bell peppers, and they are sweet."

I hunted for a recipe and found one on the Food Network.

Though the recipe doesn't call for roasted red bell peppers, I thought, why not?

I combined the peppers and heavy cream in a heavy bottomed pot.

You need a pot with a thick bottom to prevent scorching.

Bring the cream to a boil.

The recipe doesn't say, but I like to stir constantly anytime I'm cooking with milk.  

I don't want it to burn.

After a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until liquid is reduced by half.

Add some paprika, lemon juice, salt, white pepper, and just a teeny pinch of cayenne.

Add more cayenne if you like it HOT.

Put into a blender, food processor, or if you're lucky, an immersion blender does the trick.  It is so much easier to clean than the other two appliances I mentioned!

I served this sauce over some linguini pasta and a side of pan fried tilapia.  

I took a taste.  My hubby took a taste.

Creamy.  Sweet.  Just a little 'kick' in the back of my mouth from the cayenne.
